I've never watched a long conversation with Jay Bhattacharya before — only his occasional quick appearances on mainstream news. This conversation was, to me, more interesting than what Rogan had with Sanjay Gupta:
English-speaking countries that have outlawed dog ear cropping or tail docking refer to these practices as mutilation.
Not as a completely unnecessary aesthetic/cosmetic surgery. But as a mutilation.

The keynote speech at the Next.js conference has this weird flex element to it, where the CEO of Vercel, the company behind Next, is filmed working around what looks like their San Francisco office (showing off?), and talking to the camera with the soulless intonation of a run-off-the-mill business executive, making his speech barely distinguishable from millions of others by executives from google, apple, and such. Why did he feel a need to do this? Where is the hacker spirit of his earlier talks? So odd!
